Meat Processing Automation Robots

With the demand for food at a high­er rate than ever before, meat pro­cess­ing com­pa­nies are turn­ing to automa­tion to help speed up their appli­ca­tions. Cut­ting, debon­ing and shred­ding meats like beef, pork and poul­try were com­plete­ly done by hand until recent years, when automa­tion began to take over the meat pro­cess­ing business.

Meat pro­cess­ing robot­ic automa­tion must be able to with­stand mois­ture, rust and any oth­er out­side ele­ments that could cor­rode the met­al. They must have food-grade lev­el parts and coat­ings, and they must be USDA-certifiable.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers gain many advan­tages by automat­ing their meat pro­cess­ing appli­ca­tions, includ­ing decreased cycle times and increased through­put. This means that meat gets out to the cus­tomer faster, which reduces spoilage and gives it the best shelf life pos­si­ble. Also, work­ers are kept away from the sharp cut­ting tools that may have caused injuries in the past, improv­ing the safe­ty of the pro­duc­tion line.

With the use of meat pro­cess­ing robot­ic automa­tion, as opposed to human hands, there is a dra­mat­ic decrease in the risk for prod­uct con­t­a­m­i­na­tion, which means the meat is safer for human consumption.

Robots​.com has helped man­u­fac­tur­ers improve the pro­duc­tiv­i­ty of their fac­to­ry lines for more than 35 years. We have part­nered with robot­ics com­pa­nies like Fanuc, Motoman, KUKA, and ABB to ensure that our cus­tomers get the best robot­ic sys­tem to fit their appli­ca­tion and budget. 

We also offer both used and new meat pro­cess­ing sys­tems; all of our refur­bished sys­tems have under­gone a very rig­or­ous refur­bish­ment process.
